Healthcare in Idaho

C.L. "Butch" Otter

I want to ensure every Idahoan has access to quality healthcare that is affordable and is driven by patients and providers – not lawyers or government bureaucrats.

Improving affordability and access to quality healthcare is a pressing need. Addressing that need requires government and the private sector to work together collaboratively - with a common purpose - to bring about meaningful change.


The Idaho State Healthcare Innovation Plan (SHIP) - The goal of the SHIP is to redesign Idaho’s healthcare system, evolving from a fee–for-service, volume-based system to a value-based system of care that rewards improved health outcomes.

The Governor's Health Care Advisory Panel (HCAP) - The purpose of this panel is to advise the Governor and Legislators on the applicability of new federal or state health care initatives. See a list of the current members on the Governor's Health Advisory Panel here.
